Bob Weir & Ratdog, moe., Perpetual Groove
Masquerade Music Park
Atlanta, Georgia
July 17 & 18, 2009

In what has become an annual event, Masquerade Music Park in Atlanta, GA hosted a mini-festival on 7/17 and 7/18. For the first time since the event’s inception, this was a two day affair as opposed to the previous one day format. This year’s lineup lived up to the formers with Bob Weir & Ratdog, moe., and the return for the third consecutive year of Perpetual Groove.

All bands offered one long set per day with PGroove closing out the day upstairs (Heaven) inside the actual building. From start to finish, this lineup did not disappoint. The crowd that attended shook and danced to grooves that showcased the diversity of the scene, with the music that has never stopped of The Grateful Dead, the staple jam band moe., and the ever impressive newest of the three, Perpetual Groove.
